Cristiano Ronaldo shows a unique determination, an extraordinary strength of character. He remains driven by this desire to improve every day and he always pushes his limits. 

I admire this relentless will, he is a great example for all athletes in the making.

The 35-year-old still has two years contract with Turin-based club, but as the Coronavirus aftermath the financials of the big clubs went haywire. and it was suggested that Juventus might have to sell their precious possession in Summer if their Number-7 does to with to take a huge pay-cut. 

The press went berserk and linked CR7 with three different clubs from English, Spanish and French leagues, Paris Saint-Germain is the one from Ligue 1.

It seems he had a fond memory with previous superstars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Beckham, who have been legend of Manchester United, PSG and LA Galaxy, though it was PSG where they played together.

Thinking back to all the players who have joined us since the beginning of our ambition with PSG, I could still highlight the passage of Zlatan Ibrahimovic for his character, his leadership, his charisma and his ability to get things done .

He was always reliable, and when the situation demanded him, he knew how to stand up to the challenges of the moment.

I should also mention David Beckham. Although he was only at PSG for a short time, he had a transformative effect on our club.

His investment in training, his concern for applying every detail at every moment, his determination to succeed, his taste for teamwork and his natural aura were extremely precious assets… year after year

Ronaldo is known for his professionalism and has previously spoken about wanting to play for as long as his body allows so it remains to be seen where his next destination could be when his time in Turin draws to a close.
